In this document, we will provide instructions for creating an access token for LeanIX SMP service in Akamai and connecting it to LeanIX SMP. You will need access to Akamai’s Control Center with permission to manage API authorizations.

If you don’t have this permission, contact Akamai administrator within your company and ask him to create the API credentials.

​ Create an API client

You need to create an API client in Control Center for each Akamai API you want to use.

  1. Launch Identity Management in a browser
    1. In Control Center, go to ACCOUNT ADMIN -\Identity & Access.
    2. In Control Center, on the CONFIGURE menu go to Manage APIs.

    Note: When you create an API client to access an Akamai service, the authentication token inherits permissions associated with the Control Center username. This includes information about the roles and permissions, along with the level of access to specific functions.Please create a new user for LeanIX SMP integration to adjust the access level to a limited list of resources with appropriate roles and permissions.

Credentials are provided in a form of key-value pairs where key denotes the purpose of the right value after the = sign. In the next step please provide just the value (the text after the = sign) to the matching key field name. For example, in the case of values from the screenshot above we have:
